• RAW Wrestler Says He’s One Of The Most Underrated & Underutilized Guys In WWE
During a recent appearance on Lilian Garcia’s Chasing Glory podcast, 2017 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner & current RAW wrestler Mojo Rawley talked about how he’s one of the most underrated & underutilized guys in WWE.
Below is what Mojo said:
“It’s been stop and go for too long. I am new in this business but I’ve been long enough to know that things have to happen and they need to happen now.
In wrestling, I haven’t accomplished nearly what I want to. I think I’m one of the most underrated and underutilized guys in the company. Years from now I’m gonna be grateful for this. I missed out on a lot of pay per view paychecks and a lot of opportunities and I haven’t won a title yet but I don’t want to be that guy. I want to have the same career path in WWE than I did in football.
I want to have to suffer through this and I want to appreciate this so when I do have those bigger moments, I know that I earned this and I took this.”
